Indeed, it was that very type of whistleblowing that prompted Congress to establish the anti-retaliation provisions set forth in Section 806 of the Corporate and Criminal Fraud Accountability Act of 2002 (Sarbanes-Oxley Act or SOX), the sweeping reform legislation enacted to restore public confidence in corporate accounting and reporting in the wake of these and other high-profile corporate scandals.
